Chronically truant students in San Antonio-area schools may be ordered to wear GPS-equipped ankle bracelets during a six-month pilot program. "We can teach them now or run the risk of possible incarceration later on in life," said Linda Penn, a Bexar County justice of the peace. "I don't want to see the latter." The ACLU of Texas has raised the concern that the GPS monitoring devices, which also would be worn during non-school hours, will infringe on students' privacy.
